I had no idea this list was not scrollable. It's fixed now.

why does it have to move mods? what the hell does it do to the factorio Appdata folder? why can't I import existing mod selections via drag and drop mod-list.json files? where the hell do my unpacked mod configs go?

Feature request -- Link support for launching servers.

E.g. to run my server now, I have a batch file that iterates through my save list, and then calls the game through
Code: Select all
Factorio.exe --start-server "../../saves/%file_name%" --mod-directory ../../mods --server-settings server-settings.json


I actually have it set up as a separate, portable installation of the game, but the current lack of support for multiple copies of the same version of the game is no matter, I just symlinked it myself.

If there were even just a way to pass those commandline arguments straight through, that would be good enough for me.

There are some good server managers already out there if I'm not mistaken.

I planned ModMyFactory to be a client side manager so if I add support for servers at some point I will do it after all the client side stuff is done.

Version 1.5.0pre4 released

Postby Artentus » Sat Apr 01, 2017 7:51 pm

Changelog:

  • Moving directories is now faster in some cases.
  • Added setting to always keep mod updates zipped.
  • ModMyFactory now displays some more information about mods from the modportal (license, homepage, GitHub).
  • Romved the view counter of mods on the mod portal (the API does not provide it anymore).
  • Added prerequisite setting to keep old mod versions after updating (not yet functional, still debating on how to implement this).


I am sorry this took so long and 1.5 is still not out. I had a lot of work for university to do over the last weeks and did not feel like working on ModMyFactory simultaneously. This should hopefully change again now.

Why does ModMyFactory delete the mod file when adding mods?

Thanks, I plan to release at least one more main version and also a 'light' branch that is portable and only manages one Factorio installation.

What happens after that is not planned yet, we'll see.

Mh, interesting. I can not login myself but only when I try to download Factorio. Downloading or updating mods works just fine.

They must have changed something about how the login page works. I'll have to look into this.
I wish they would just offer an API for this as they do for everything else...

Hi Artentus,

I was just wondering whether it's possible to automatically update mods to their 0.15 version? I have tried clicking the update mods button and it just says everything is up to date. MMF detects that I have the latest version of Factorio (0.15.2) and I have the latest version of MMF (1.5.3).

Thanks

If your manager mode is set to "Per Factorio version" it will only update mods to their newest version that support the same version of Factorio. This way it doesn't update your 0.14 mods to 0.15 versions and break your 0.14 install.
If your manager mode is set to "Global" it will not manager mods on a per-version basis. In this mode a mod will always be updated to its verry latest available version no matter what version of Factorio it targets.

If you are only using the one version of Factorio you should set your mode to global.
If you have multiple Factorio versions installed per Factorio version is recommended, but then you will have to add those mods manually. I have planned to add some way to download all your mods for a newer Factorio version without deleting the old mods but I have not yet found a good way to do it.
